I can tell by the sheer number of “back to school” flyers and catalogs coming daily in my mailbox, that fall really is just around the corner! Fall is of course the most popular time for our studio, as it’s long been a favorite time of year for family portrait sessions. There’s just something extra cozy about photographing families in the fall! If you’re interested in booking a fall portrait session for your family, be sure to schedule soon, as dates are filling up fast! My August newsletter went out this morning- which typically means a call to action to my clients to get on our calendar!
This family have been 3 Peas clients since their oldest was just a wee little lad. I always look forward to our sessions every year, as I know the boys will be SO much fun, as they always bring such great energy, while still being their sweet selves. Plus, being a veteran of photo sessions, their mom always does such a great job of coordinating outfits for their family. I always say it’s much harder to do when you have only boys! She nails it every year. When I pulled up to their house last fall for this session, I loved the vibe instantly. Warm yet bright, and very much in sync with their personalities. If you’ve been to my studio, you surely recognize these boys from our session a few years ago, as I have their scooter riding photograph large up on my wall, as it’s an all time favorite. It’s really an honor to photograph families year after year, and it’s something I treasure, that I get to be part of their family legacy…in the photos I provide them.
We held their session right in their front yard, and a little bit just tromping around their neighborhood sidewalks. People often think they need elaborate landscaping to have a session at their home, but you really don’t. While this family does happen to have a fantastic yard and home, the feel of the session lends itself to both being more personal, but still classic at the same time. As it’s not really about the location, it’s about the family, their connections, and their spirits.
Signature sessions really give us time to romp and play, giving kids lots freedom to move and play. It really provides us with such great ability to have natural photographs. They can just kick back, relax, have fun with each other, and trust that the images resulting from our time together will be awesome! A few of my faves from our session:
